The Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens is the successor to the long respected telezoom lens that contributed greatly in making this Canon lens line a favorite among directors of photography and home consumers alike. Dust and drip-proof, the Canon L series lenses offer stunning image technology paired with robust engineering.
With a reduction of the minimum focus distance to 1.2m and an increase in the maximum magnification to .21x, the Canon EF 70-200mm II captures a rich depth of field that allows shooters a great deal of versatility in image selection. News photographers and commercial DPs will love this lens for the same reason – flexibility paired with spectacular image quality.
Furthering their commitment to improving upon original designs, Canon engineers rehashed the internal optical system to include 23 elements in 19 groups. The end result is high contrast images with edge-to-edge definition. Adding greatly to this redesign, the EF 70-200mm II features a major reduction in the protrusion of exterior parts and switches along with a new high-speed Auto Focus (AF) system. A ring-type USM AF motor combined with a new high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithm is at the core of the EF 70-200mm II AF system, making it both faster and quieter than previous systems.
This lens is an excellent addition to any Canon 5D or Canon 7D package. Rent the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens from Moving Picture today!
